Intergalactic battle isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you’re thinking about Reykjavik, Iceland… especially when you consider the governments recent precedent setting pushes for global transparency and freedom of speech… but don’t tell designer Sig Vicious that. He’s created a series of 10 images which capture the peaceful city under crazy assault by Snowspeeders, AT-ATs, AT-STs, X-Wings… just about all the war hardware from the first Star Wars movies. It’s all out war in black and white (bonus points if you spot the Challenger explosion in one of these images).
Sig Vicious (himself based in Reykjavik) is a self-described half graphic machine and half radical artist. These images, leaning on the art side, do well to demonstrate his sharp, crisp style, one which does well to emulate the stark, cold light of his northern home. He began his career as a graphic designer in 1997, soon after starting his own advertising agency in 1999. His work often blends pop culture references with bold colors and well executed typographic flourishes. All in all, it’s a very engaging and digestible style that deserves a close look.
